FAQS About Tanning Naked
Am I Allowed to Tan in the Nude at a Tanning Salon?
In the tanning salon industry, permission to tan in the nude while using a bed or getting a spray tan is more of a “Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell” sort of rule, unless you are getting a manual airbrush spray tan, in which case, you would want to ask the technician if they are comfortable with you going in the buff. Between each use, tanning salon staff uses a comprehensive approach to cleaning and sanitizing the tanning beds, so you do not have to worry about transmission of germs or dirt. If you want to tan naked at the salon, go for it! A lot of people prefer to tan this way! Otherwise, opt for your favorite swimsuit.
Is it Safe to Tan Without Any Clothes or Bathing Suit On?
For the most part, tanning without any clothes on in an indoor tanning bed is perfectly safe so long as your skin is not overly sensitive to UV light exposure. There are certain body parts that are more sensitive to UV light exposure that are generally covered by bathing suits or undergarments, so consider this additional exposure if you are new to nude tanning. When it comes to spray tanning, whether an automated spray tanning bed or manual airbrush spray tanning session, going in the nude is perfectly safe.
What are the Benefits of Tanning in the Nude?
One of the most admired benefits of tanning in the nude is no tan lines, which renders a more natural look. This is even more advantageous in the spring and summer when tank tops, crop tops, and spaghetti strap dresses are staples in every girl’s wardrobe. Some noted downfalls of tanning naked might include skin sensitivity and irritation in delicate areas of the body, as well as the potential for over tanning.
Do I Need to Protect My Skin While Tanning Naked?
No matter which type of UV light you are exposing your skin to, whether indoor tanning, outdoor tanning, or some other form of UV exposure, it is vital that your skin is always fully protected. Be sure to use a quality sunscreen when outdoors in the natural sun and consider wearing sunscreen on your face and any sensitive areas of your body before tanning indoors. In fact, it is highly recommended to purchase a quality tanning lotion that both protects your skin and stimulates melatonin development, delivering a natural tan, safely.
